Night-time raiders have stolen more than 150 items, including 12 tea-towels, from a Tesco supermarket.

They took two 43" televisions, 29 electric toothbrushes, 22 tubes of toothpaste, 10 DVDs and a beard grooming kit.

Their haul also included 66 packs of razor blades, five cans of hairspray and some back pain relief patches.

The theft happened at 04:30 BST on Wednesday at the Billingham store which is closed between midnight and 06:00.

It is believed two men wearing dark tracksuits with the hoods up were responsible, Cleveland Police said.

It is not known whether either of them had beards.
